          “Would You Like a Drink of Water?” Please Ask a Yemeni Child
    
          June 24, 2017
    
          This week representatives from more than 100 countries began work on an international treaty to ban nuclear weapons. By boycotting this process the U.S. and other nuclear armed nations showed they have no intention of giving up the power to annihilate planetary life.

          Israel’s P.R. Campaign is Failing: The More Americans Know, The Less Favorable They Are
    
          June 24, 2017
    
          The study says that Americans have learned a lot more about Israel since 2010, but that knowledge has fostered the country’s unfavorable reputation, and fed the “delegitimization” campaign, because Americans increasingly feel that Israel does not share their values.

          Revisiting Tony Kushner’s ‘Angels In America’ In The Trump Era  
    
          June 24, 2017
